This category is to submit material for Special Projects, Series, Collections, and Anthologies with open calls at Alternating Current Press. All accepted pieces receive payment and are considered for their respective awards categories (prose, poetry).

Pieces submitted to special projects are still read blind and still go through our selection process. There are no expedited or feedback options for this category. You will receive a standard form reply only.

You may only submit once per month to this category. If submitting to more than one project at once, please bundle all your submissions into one single file, and simply indicate in the cover letter which pieces correlate with which projects.

All pieces should adhere to our regular guidelines for poetry and prose:
